Quiet neighbourhood, nice breakfast, free Parking, nice staff
Rooms a bit too cold in this season (Windows have been kept opened before our arrival)
The breakfasts were the best I've had at a hotel or BnB - it was very tempting to linger - and the staff were very pleasant indeed, learning our menu preferences quickly while remaining unobtrusive. The attractive rooms had everything we needed, including electric blankets on the comfortable beds (most welcome), and rusks and coffee. Security was good - a parking bay with electric gate was available for our hire car the whole time. We were based at Wits during the day and it was about 7 minutes drive in peak traffic. Some wonderful restaurants were within 500m or so but didn't make the place noisy. The owner was very accommodating when we needed separate invoices, having paid one deposit. All in all, a great place to stay.
The internet access was a bit patchy, and not helped by the fact that we were each given one-day access passes when we were there for 5 nights. They had the habit of running out late in the evening, just when one felt like checking email but it was too late to get another password. There were week-long passes available, so I'm not sure why we weren't given them at the outset, seeing we'd booked for so long. Also, if you want a lie in, don't book Room 3 - I needed to be up early so it was fine, but no matter how quiet the staff were, the clunk of the gate woke me at 630 every morning!
The staff were extremely and extra friendly. Makes you feel at home. The breakfast was very good, but mostly was the room. It was great, confortable and very clean. I would go there again in my next trip.
Not very helpful in getting in a tour trip with more people. Ended up touring alone.
We thoroughly enjoyed our very warm welcome at this guesthouse. The breakfast was excellent and we were able to arrange tours easily from the guesthouse. The staff were always courteous and helpful and we can recommend it to all.
An absolutely charming place! I felt so at home at the Ginnegaap, meeting Corlien and the rest of the wonderful people (and the awesome cat). It is very near to a lot of shops, restos and such. The guesthouse definitely made my dream trip to Johannesburg truly one to remember.
Never seeeing the hostess
Great guesthouse, met our needs exactly, pleasure to stay with Corlien and her team. Thanks
the rooms, the service and the location
the beds were very comfortable and clean
needs a small table or stool in bathroom to put your toiletry bag on.
Breakfast was really nice and the staff was very kind.
The stay was great. we had a great time.
the fact that i could only have one dish for breakfast. i thought it wa a buffet
My stay was perfect for what I needed. the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
There is no parking
Bedding was good, towels were clean
Friendly people at reception. Lots of restaurants nearby
The location did not work for us as we were only spending the night and it was a 500 rands taxi fare each way to the airport. The room was nice enough but extremely dark and very low light from lamps.
Noise insulation between rooms was lacking.
the rooms where clean but your parking area doesn't look great.
no where to sit outside in the evening.
the breakfast was wonderful. the rooms are nicely decorated and it feels like home. friendly staff.
Our room was really quiet and nicely decorated. Good value for money for accommodation in a city, where everything usually is more expensive.
The premises are nice, breakfast complete and sufficient, personal kind and helpful
The staff were super friendly and helpful - really went out of their way. The location was great and very convenienent. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfest was 5 star - absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend the guesthouse.
friendliness, hospitality the food and the general feel of the guesthouse. Very accommodating and excellent service. Room was always neat and tidy, everything that you could want or need was there. Amazing place.
The parking. Way too small and difficult to get in and out.
Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Tours were very good organized. Breakfast excellent,good quality.
As my flight out was the second day i had to chk out around 10PM (full fee). That day i came back from a tour around 5PM.I found out that they emptied both cupboards and painted them: terrible smell and very inconvenient .That was a bit awkward, management didn't show up for explanation.
Location was excellent. Breakfast options were delicious. Staff exceedingly helpful and friendly.
Room appeared larger on the website, and were a little inconsistent with the details provided on booking.com (no hardwood floors, no balcony, no fireplace mantel). Also, no door on bathroom. Small inconveniences however for such a great experience!
